About this project

It’s time to make a little history ya'll.  

Marvel Studios has green-lit the next Punisher movie, slated for a 2014 release. Our goal for this project is to create a body of work that grabs the attention of the executives at Marvel Studios. . .and to leave no doubt that Chris Warner is the only logical candidate to portray the next Frank Castle (aka The Punisher).

For those of you who don’t know the character, The Punisher is a fictional, anti-hero who appears in the Marvel Comics Universe.   To date, there have been 3 movies made about The Punisher - ’89 with Dolph Lundgren, ’04 with Thomas Jane and ’08 with Ray Stevenson. 

Our plan is to take an existing Punisher comic, The Cell, and give it motion.  For those of you who are fans, I have chosen Garth Ennis’ more graphic interpretation.  In The Cell, The Punisher voluntarily surrenders himself to the police and is sent to the exact prison where five of the most notorious mobsters responsible for his family’s death reside...and let the chaos and mayhem begin.  The main objective for this project is to create something that holds true to the original story.  

To do this and to stay true to the comic and the fans, we need your help.  We need to raise $30,000 in 60 days!  That’s right, $30k in 60 days...which is where you come in.

If we have ever inspired, touched or moved you OR if you just want to see The Punisher kick some serious ass, then please donate whatever your heart feels is right.

We need each and every one of you to help take this to the next level.  Greatness wasn’t greatness before it became greatness...and it didn't become Greatness without the help of others.

Just click on the link provided and follow the instructions to donate.  Feel free to forward this on to any or all of your friends, family and countrymen.  Any and all help is greatly appreciated and for those of you who choose to dig deep – there are some VERY cool rewards.

We'll end this with a now infamous Chrisism... "I’ll remember you when I’m big if you remember me when I’m small."

Thank you for helping us make history.  See you on the big screen ya’ll!!
